The renowned educationist, Mrs. Theodosia Jackson has advised students to stay and read their books.
The Principal of the Jackson College of Education noted that the mandatory closure of schools following the Coronvirus pandemic does not mean closure of books.
The President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo directed the closure of all Universities, Senior High Schools, and basic schools, be it public or private schools in the country, effective Monday, March 16, 2020, till further notice as part of measures by the government to combat COVID-19 (Coronavirus) as positive cases have climbed to 152 and claiming four lives.
In a campaign embarked upon by Mrs. Jackson and dubbed “Read your books” sending a clear and simple message to students to “Stay home and save lives”, as propagated on social media.
Principal Jackson’s campaign, by inference, advised students to adhere to the presidential directives by staying home but ensure that they make the most of their stay in the house more productive by learning through reading their books and by so doing save lives as their restriction would go a long way to help contain the spread of the contagious COVID-19.
